Hooray For Today PPA202

May 1, 2014

I made several cards today.  I had a great day at home and I really enjoy days like that.  I must admit, I am tired tonight, so I am going to post this last card for today and relax.  I never seem to do that.  

The Pals Paper Arts Challenge features my very favorite color combination this week!  Real Red and Bermuda Bay----- LOVE, LOVE, LOVE  those colors together!  So bright and cheery!  These colors make me happy!  So, to go along with my colors, I pulled out one of my favorite stamps, Regarding Dahlias.  I haven't inked it up in a while and I knew it was perfect for my card!  Hope you like it!

       I made three Real Red Dahlias and fussy cut two of them to make the dimension on the flower.
